7 months ago I launched @stylingmat and couldn't care less about flat lays (yes I know that's ironic!) They're a regular part of my workday now out of necessity, and this series of photos was one of the very first flat lays I ever did that I actually liked right around the time I launched. I let this scene sit for 2 days and continually photographed it as the flowers decayed and the light changed throughout the day. It was a really fun and interesting little project, and made me realize that I might just be able to like doing flat lays. I found the box of these flowers today and I'm looking forward to trying them out again now that they're totally dried.

Just popping in to say “hello”. It’s been a crazy day of finishing up a session then running around the city finding winter gear for my ever growing boys since we are heading to Whiteshell area for a weekend of winter fun with my family!!
In other news I’m completely overwhelmed by your response to my holiday sessions announcement last night. Here I thought I’d casually post and then sit back and enjoy an epic football game (did you all catch that game?? Yikes!) .... but after posting, my email & dm’s went crazy and I spent till midnight replying to everyone! And still haven’t quite caught up. If you are waiting to hear from me, I’m getting to your emails. Unfortunately Saturday booked up super fast and I only have a few spots left on Friday. So if you can make Friday work, let me know! xo Rosie
PS this fabulous door is on location at the tree farm and one of the options for a backdrop ❤️
Just jumping out of my seat a little bit about these beauuutifulllll film images back from @thefindlab from my recent workshop. Huge HUGE thank you to these incredible vendors and models: @jlkweddings @theravington @tesori_bridal_formal @vaseandvine @paper_supply_co @blossombeautyar @tri_top_ @kingjay501 @earthandhoneycakes @joshwilsonfilms
A few weeks back I had the honor of documenting my brothers San Diego beach elopement - talk about special ❤️ & to top it off we had the most incredible, yummy golden sunset. Oh California light! So blessed to have an amazing new sister ✨
185 days! Josh and I have no words to describe how much we love @katirosado! Not only is she the absolute sweetest person ever, but she was totally able to make us feel comfortable outside of our comfort zones! And on top of that, she’s an amazingggg photographer? We can’t recommend her highly enough!!! We are IN LOVE with our engagement photos! Thank you, Kati! ❤️
The groom's reaction is not the only important one during the first look. I absolutely love to see the bride's face light up when she sees her soon-to-be-husband ❤️ Happy 2nd anniversary Peyton and Andrew!!!
What we are grateful for!
Day #2 >> Friends!
Your "Chosen Family" are the best type of friends, which tend to be the lovelies you put in your bridal party. We are blessed with pals all over the world and we also miss our closest pals in Denver. The last few years we have really been forming great friendships in California. Since Tim and I have lived all over the place, we understand how important it is to keep up with people, stay in touch, make the effort to see the pals you love. This week is a good time to send those "Love ya" Bitmoji's and silly “cat hugging a dog” GIFS to your pals. Don't forget!

For the first time in MANY YEARS, I will not be eating Thanksgiving Dinner in a restaurant with strangers. I actually get to enjoy the holiday at home with my family in California and I am so excited!! 🦃

When we reached the top of the hike up the mountain we were completely inside a cloud, which made for such a romantic scene! These photos of Candice and Chad are unlike any mountain engagement session we’ve done before and we loved it! ☁️
That gaze looking down at her baby girl. I know that feeling that mama has right there. Gosh I would have a hundred babies if I could, because that feeling she’s feeling is as close to magic as you can get 💫 #photovision#contax645#fuji400h
Hello, just popping in to say hi and thank you to everyone who supported me, my business and my family this year. You guys are amazing and I’m hustling away getting wedding galleries and family sessions out the door for you! xx
It’s all about the foot pop! These in-between moments are our favorite to capture!! (Featured on @stylemepretty & @santabarbarawedding, Planning: @alegriabydesign, Florist: @louloudidesign, MUAH: @teamhairandmakeup, Location: @rcbacarasantabarbara)
Holiday seasons are always so busy for photographers - we are all basically drowning in work until January. We all get frustrated and want to quit looking at photos for eternity, BUT at the end of the day, it really is worth it. I love my couples 🖤
Thanksgiving is just two days away, and it's had Ashley and I reflecting on gratefulness more than usual! Most of you may not know this, but Ashley and I both make thankfulness a part of our daily routine all year round, not just the month of November. It's helped us both have a more positive attitude, it's made dealing with stress easier... there are so many benefits to gratitude! To Learn more about what Ashley and I do, visit the link in profile and head to our blog: 3 ways to cultivate gratitude. We'll be EXTRA thankful for the read! ;)
How are you guys spending your Thanksgiving?? I am in charge of potatoes this year (and every year. Because I am the potato queen! I am from Idaho after all 🤷♀️) .
I really like Thanksgiving mostly because you can basically get away with wearing pajamas all day and eating until you could explode. Awesome. 👌
Fall vibes 🍂 I’m loving these film scans from @photovisionprints! Haley’s outfit + this floral color palette has me in the autumn mood fo sho.
Ps - I made this bouquet! I’ve always wished I could make pretty flower arrangements for my engagement sessions, but I’m not the most natural florist. 😬 But, I’ve taken a class or two this year and feel like I’m getting the hang of it! 💐
What do you think? Is an engagement session bouquet something you’d totally want for your shoot, or is it just me? 😏
What a stunning set of bouquets! I just love Fall weddings and their bold colors. Don't get me wrong, I love my pastels and neutrals but something about bold colors can make a girl feel... sassy. 💃🏻 Florals by Rich Mar Florist.
Sometimes we get invited to the most spectacular of sunsets filled with surprises too.
Congrats to Nathan and Kylie on their recent beautiful Fall surprise proposal in Newport!✨
